good morning, everyone. it's friday, november 23rd. i'm michelle griego. >> i'm brian hackney. frank is off. almost 6:30. there may be some traffic jams in the bay area and it's not people commuting to work. >> no, it isn't. chopper 5 is live over serramonte center in daly city. take a look, one of many places where shoppers are heading out this morning. elissa harrington is at j.c. penney in daly city but first we go to cbs 5 reporter cate caugiran at the new paragon outlets in livermore. >> reporter: good morning, brian and michelle. i think this is dedication. really what it is. i'm seeing these shoppers out here. but actually right now it's calmed down a bit because it's nothing like last night. shoppers were out here at the mall at 10:00 last night and store leaders tell me it was a zoo! the doors opened or the 130 shops opened up just last night. we spoke to shoppers who have
6:30 am
actually been here since then. for them they say it's all about the rush and the constantly changing deals. the stores will be switching up discounts throughout the day. they range from 20 to 50% off and shoppers tell me, black friday is all about getting more bang for your buck. >> only spent about 60 bucks so all in all from the stores that i purchase from, maybe 150, 150 bucks. >> worth it? >> well worth it. >> reporter: the outlet is expected to reach full capacity today. it's california's newest outlet in the past 11 years. paragon actually just opened its doors two weeks ago. it's hard to believe. take a look in chopper 5, this is around the time we first got here. lots of people shopping, bags and parking lots full. it's been constantly busy since they opened. it's not expected to slow down any time soon. the best time to come is now. we are seeing that first shift of shoppers finally go home.
6:31 am
the next round is expected about now. for good deals, come by. cate caugiran, cbs 5. >> it's been a busy morning at the vacaville outlets. black friday traditionally is the biggest retail ee haven't of the year for the premium -- event of the year for the premium outlet simon property group. they own outlet centers in napa, petaluma and gilroy. most j.c. penney stores opened just a half hour ago. cbs 5 reporter elissa harrington is live at the daly city store. j.c. penney is going in a different direction this black friday. >> reporter: much different direction. definitely against the trend was as you most retailers have been opening earlier and earlier to stay competitive, j.c. penney actually opened later. they opened at serramonte center at 5 a.m. and most other places at 6:00 this morning. there are a couple of reasons that the company chose to make that move. one, to not overlap into thanksgiving. a message on their twitter account says thanksgiving is for thanking, not shopping.
6:32 am
their business model is about low prize every day not just black friday -- low prices every day, not just black friday and their customers shouldn't have to wait up early to get a good deal. >> he sent a message out that's amazing. he said thanksgiving is for the family and wanted us to be at home with our families to celebrate. so i know all of us at the daly city jcp appreciated it a lot. >> reporter: the new ceo ron johnson has done a major overhaul of the company's pricing system eliminating sales and coupons to go instead for the lowest possible prices every day. this black friday sale is their only sale of the year. and even though numbers show that their sales are gone way down, the managers tell me that this model is working and they have no plans to change it. in daly city, elissa harrington, cbs 5. >> okay, elissa, thanks very much. a lot of best buys opened at the stroke of midnight including this one on santana row in san jose. [ screaming ] >> they're excited. many people were camped out for days to be among the first
6:33 am
through the doors since bargain items are often in limited supply. one guy only in line for a few hours so he did not get the tv he wanted. >> yeah, this is going to work out fine. they had something else on sale earlier. but this is about the right size. i know it's going to fit so good price, should work out fine. >> still based on the hysteria of the past, to make sure that everybody remained calm, the santana row store let customers through the doors only 50 at a time. and that seemed to work out pretty well. [ screaming ] >> more retail therapy here. a lot of stores are in the middle of marathons opening on thanksgiving staying open until closing time tonight. and this is one of the busiest target stores in san jose where shoppers entered in groups of 30. a lot of them wanted big ticket items like flat screen tvs. shoppers at some bay area walmart stores will find picket lines today. walmart workers are not unionized but they are being helped from the united food and
6:34 am
commercial workers. this walmart on hesperian in san leandro is one of four bay area stores where picketers plan to protest today. they also picketed last night prompting a manager to order them off the property. >> this is private property. again, we' asking you and your group -- we're asking you and your group to leave. >> california law gives us the right to talk to customers and handle in front of the stores. >> if you don't leave, we will get the police involved. >> organizers are calling for walmart to improve employee wages and working conditions. other walmarts targeted today include the richmond and fairfield stores as well as the story road location in east san jose. all of this is leading to the fact that americans are expected to spend a good deal more during the holidays this year. retail experts predict overall holiday sales are going to be up about 4% from last year. that means the average shopper will spend $582. online retailers are looking for a double-digit hike in
6:35 am
spending. consumers are likely to spend more than $400 on internet shopping. now that black friday is here we are looking ahead to cyber monday. for info on the how to go online and save money go to >> i said i wasn't going shopping today but elizabeth talked me into it. >> are you seriously going to do it? >> seriously. elizabeth and i are going together. >> we're within walking distance of a mall! [ laughter ] if you are going out right now getting some black friday deals here's what it looks like from overhead. this is a view from chopper 5. they are in daly city right now by serramonte center and gosh, compared to last night, this actually looks pretty good up 280 and serramonte boulevard. chopper 5 has been cruising area malls all morning and it's so far looking good on most bay area freeways. let's go to our maps and other live traffic cameras. here's the bay bridge toll plaza. so far no metering lights. so that is the good news. easy breezy into san francisco so far and if you are heading towards the dublin interchange,
6:36 am
this is a look at westbound and eastbound 580. we know a lot of, may be heading towards paragon outlets in livermore. and so far the drive time is still only about 15 minutes between the altamont pass and dublin-pleasanton. so here's some other drive times across the east bay. obviously a lot of people are off work today. black friday holiday "friday light" so everything is good coming down the eastshore freeway. 880 the nimitz and 24 through the caldecott tunnel. a lot of mass transit is on a holiday schedule. we'll talk more about that coming up. in the meantime a check of the forecast with lawrence on that. >> it was hard to talk michelle into going shopping today. michelle, do you want to go shopping? okay. [ laughter ] >> she was ready to go. out the door, a little chilly in spots early on. we are seeing patchy ground fog developing in the napa valley. high pressure overhead looks like the rain line will stay well to the north probably through the weekend so looks like some great weather ahead today. temperatures a little cold to begin with in some of the valleys, down to the upper 30s in the napa valley right now.

6:38 am
six units. >> this is one heck of a thanksgiving for you, huh? >> yes. but, you know, looking on the good side my family is okay and that's we're thankful for. it's really bad feeling but we're okay and that's the most important thing. >> fire started on the upper level of the building maybe in a fireplace. investigators are still looking into it. former moraga school board president explained his decision to resign 24 hours after he was re-elected. dexter louie tells la narinda weekly the decision to step down was painful. he didn't explain. the newspaper reports that he may have had a conflict of interest concerning a child abuse lawsuit against two former teachers. some of louie's relatives spoke on behalf of one of the suspects. and in other news this morning, israeli troops killed a palestinian man today along its border with gaza. it's the first violence since israel and hamas agreed to a cease-fire. 19 others were injured in what appears to be an isolated
6:39 am
incident. otherwise, things are starting slowly to return to normal in the region now that the truce has ended eight days of intense fighting. as part of that truce, two border crossings are open again. but despite the relative peace, one israeli commander warns his troops are ready if they are needed. >> gaza will be a quiet place. if the terror organizations will reoperate from gaza, the future is worse than it was. >> meanwhile an israeli army spokesman says that a member of hamas has been arrested for a bus bombing in tel aviv. the explosion there injured 27 people wednesday before the truce. time now 6:39. the line, the deals, and all the hype. next, a political insider on fashion sense and common sense on this black friday. >> and the u.s. postal service taking a cue from online retailers. the urban destination that's taking same-day delivery on test drive. >> and the market is open for
